Enhance flow, demolding and many other properties
WITH OUR HIGH-PERFORMING WAX SOLUTIONS
With our Licowax® and Licocene® polymeric waxes, we offer resin manufacturers excellent additives for improving the melt and flow characteristics of their polymers. Our saponified Licomont® montan waxes are a popular choice for nucleating polyamides and polyesters to speed up cycle times. Similarly, our specialty Ceridust® grades can serve as gas cell nucleators in specialty foams when discrete cell structure and faster hardening times are needed.
In compounding, our advanced wax additives add value to all kinds of plastic compounds. By improving polymer melt flow and the mold release of plastic parts, our Licocare® and Licowax® solutions enable faster cycles, smoother surfaces, better dispersion and higher shaping flexibility. For enhancing the surface and mechanical properties of thermoplastic composites, we offer tailored solutions like our MAH-grafted Licocene®.
Three good reasons for choosing Clariant
KEY BENEFITS OF OUR WAX SOLUTIONS
Enable higher operational efficiency due to faster flow at lower temperatures, reducing molding time and costs, and allowing shorter cooling times in extrusion
Enable enhanced performance due to easier, faster filling of molds with difficult geometries, leading to less molded-in stress, better mechanics, and less scrap
Provide opportunities for saving formulations costs due to the lower need for more expensive polymers and heat stabilizers
